Ramsey :: 2am

Apr 3rd, 2016 : by :: Tags: , ,
Ramsey…Goddamn. She is blowing up right now and for damn good reason. I shared a couple of my favorites of hers a little over a month ago. Just 19 days ago she dropped a fresh new single on us, the dark and mysterious 2am, already buzzing with 195,000 plays. Her writing and producing styles, along with that unbelievable voice, is truly intoxicating. I cannot wait to hear more from her!

Ramsey :: See You Bleed + Red & White

Feb 17th, 2016 : by :: Tags: , ,
Ramsey - See You Bleed Trip-hop singer/songwriter Ramsey seems to have come out of nowhere. She’s only been active on social networks since mid-December, and in the last month she has dropped 8 tracks on Soundcloud, all of which were written and produced herself. In this short amount of time, she has grabbed the attention of over 3,000 followers.
Her songs are as dark and sexy as her voice is raspy and soulful. The sound is quite enveloping – hard to quit after just one listen. In the same vein as Portishead and Phantogram, the tunes are dripping with trip-hop, downtempo beats and heavy on reverberating bass lines. Here is her first official single, “See You Bleed”, along with another one of my favorites, “Red and White”.

Sleepwreck :: Take It Apart

Feb 5th, 2016 : by :: Tags: , , ,
When robots eventually become self-aware, they will likely acquire a taste in music, and almost certainly get the itchy feet to start dancing. Sleepwreck will undoubtedly be in heavy rotation on the robot dance floor. Self-described as “the sound of cyborgs dancing around a ritual bonfire”, or as I like to think of it as the sound of the cyborgs’ Burning Man, Jesse Davis Selkirk’s musical stylings is a tasteful combination of euro-dance and prog rock.
At times Sleepwreck provides the phat beats and tribal groovage that is sure to make that booty drop; other times it is much more heavy, with distorted guitar licks & trip-hop beats – a sound fit for the head-banging shoe-gazers among us. His latest offering, “Take It Apart“, from the upcoming release Disasterpiece, is of the latter persuasion, how I imagine a mashup of Tool and The Faint might sound like.
Disasterpiece is set to release February 12th on East Van Digital.

Port of Est. :: Valentine In My Headphones (Video)

Feb 2nd, 2016 : by :: Tags: , ,
Port of Est :: Valentine In My Headphones (Video) Vocalist Hannah Tarkinson and producer Todd Kitchens joined creative forces in 2013 to form the deeply moody, electronic pop duo Port of Est. The Portlandians (of the Maine variety) spent a good part of their first year together trying to find the perfect balance in their musical tastes to compliment their unique styles. “Valentine In My Headphones” gives us a taste of the lovely chord that was struck when everything clicked: a complex blend of shoegaze and drum and bass – a true soundscape of IDM-pop grandeur. Check out “Valentine In My Headphones” on Soundcloud, and keep an ear out for the official release on February 14th (naturally) on Port of Est.’s own Delphinium Music.

Mleo :: New Single “Ridiculous” + “Round Two (If you Feel It)”

Dec 12th, 2015 : by :: Tags: , , , ,
Mleo

Audrey Reed, Victor San Pedro, and Nick De La O, together known as Mleo (muh-lee-oh), have been jamming together since high school. Elias Vasquez joined the group behind drums a few years back, and they have been crafting their musical style ever since, blossoming into a truly stunning young group, creating a fresh, unique blend of jazz, funk, and R&B. Not to mention that kick ass ska punk vibe they’ve got going on in the rhythm section, reminiscent of early No Doubt and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their 2014 release Sunken City is a rock solid album, proving that despite being such a young band, there’s something truly special going on here. Their latest single, “Ridiculous“, gives us even more proof that they’ve really only scratched the surface in discovering themselves as a group, and their sound is bound to continue evolving, moving them further and further outside the box of indie pop rock.

Khruangbin – Firecracker

Jul 3rd, 2015 : by :: Tags: , ,

A Thai funk rock band from Texas you say? That’s awesome. Khruangbin, the Thai word for airplane or “engine fly”, formed in Space City, Houston, are heavily influenced by dusty rock cassette tapes from 60s and 70s Thailand.
